First Look: 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro with Force Touch, new GPU

05/25, 7:12am

Refreshed 15-inch MacBook Pro brings welcome upgrades

Apple has given the 15-inch MacBook Pro a refresh, giving it a fresh lease of life. Unusually, however, it does not include an upgrade to its Intel Core i7 quad-core CPU. Due to delays with Intel's quad-core "Broadwell" parts, the new 15-inch MacBook Pro continues with a fourth-generation quad-core Core i7 part clocked at 2.5GHz. It does however, include some substantial upgrades elsewhere. This new model now features the all-new Force Touch trackpad that debuted on the new 12-inch MacBook with Retina display, and which is also found on the recently refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro. It also gains much faster PCIe flash storage, but more importantly, its aging Nvidia Ge Force GT 750M has been replaced with a much faster and all-new AMD R9 M370X.

04/01, 8:11pm

Full review of Apple's new 13-inch MBP with Force Touch trackpad

Although the new darling of the Apple MacBook line up is the all-new MacBook, Apple has given its popular 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display a solid refresh. While the stunning new MacBook caters to a select audience of users who value portability above all else, the MacBook Pro is a much more well-rounded machine that is still portable, but offers much more power and flexibility. It also gains one of the marquee features of the new MacBook, the Force Touch trackpad, that ditches a mechanical clicking mechanism for one that has been completely re-engineered around haptic feedback. Read on in our full review to see how the new 13-inch MacBook Pro shapes up.

First Look: Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro (with Force Touch trackpad)

03/23, 8:16pm

Apple quietly revolutionizes the trackpad with Force Touch

The new 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display looks exactly like the model that it replaces, though it remains comfortably the most beautifully designed and finished full-power 13-inch notebook on the market. Beneath the hood, however, it has been substantially reengineered with Intel's new 5th-generation Core i5 or i7 dual-core processors, also known by their "Broadwell" codename as well as flash storage that is twice as fast as the previous model. Nice. As an unexpected bonus, Apple has also included its brand new Force Touch trackpad to the equation, which is in many ways the real star of the show.
